let me introduce myself

My name is Ariana. I enjoy doing yoga, finding the best brunch spot in town, and cuddling up next to my chubby pug, Mazie.

Oh, and I am also a Type 1 Diabetic.

In most of the bios I have written throughout my life, I have decided to leave out that small tidbit of information.

Why? Well, I never liked sharing something so personal with the fear that others may not understand or accept a complicated disease that I deal with every day. While having diabetes doesn’t define who I am, it is something that makes me a little more me.

I’ve decided to begin changing the perspective I have on my own health, starting with this blog. I want to share my experiences, the highs and lows (literally), along with anything I’ve learned along the way.

My goal here is to share knowledge, inspire growth, keep myself accountable for my diabetes, and most importantly unite those of us who have one more unique characteristic about ourselves.
